The 1997 LFC orientation was very successful. This 
year's theme was "We know our students by name." It 
began with three days of training for the Orientation 
Leaders. After the training the new students began 
arriving at LFC. During this week of Orientation, the 
OL's had some primary responsibiUties including help- 
ing the new students move into their dorms and get- 
ting settled, giving talks to the students about campus 
lifestyles and academic policies and answering any of 
their questions about LFC. However, that was not the 
only thing going on. There was a week of fun activities 
planned for the new students and Orientation Leaders 
including a picinic with faculty and staff, an Orienta- 
tion Leader Lip Sync Contest, and a trip to The Second 
City Comedy Club in downtown Chicago.

thought i knew my mind like the back of my hand 
the gold and the rainbow, but nothing panned out as i planned 
and they say only milk and honey's gonna make your soul satisfied! 
well i better learn how to swim 
cause the crossing is chilly and wide 
twisted guardrail on the highway, broken glass on the cement 
a ghost of someone's tragedy 
how recklessly my time has been spent 
and they say that it's never too late, but you don't get any younger! 
well, i better learn how to starve the emptiness 
and feed the hunger 
up on the watershed, standing at the fork in the road 
you can stand there and agonize 
till your agony's your heaviest load 
you'll never fly as the crow flies, get used to a country mile- 
when your learning to face the path at your pace 
every choice is worth your while 
well there's always retrospect to light a clearer path 
every five years or so i look back on my life 
and i have a good laugh 
you start at the top, go full circle round 
catch a breeze, take a spill- 
but ending up where i started again makes me want to stand still, 
stepping on a crack, breaking up and looking back 
every tree limb overhead just seems to sit and wait 
until every step you take becomes a twist of fate

Each friend represents a world in us, a world not possible until they 
arrive, and it's only by meeting that a new world is born 

Some people come into our lives and 
quickly go. Some people move our souls 
to dance. They awaken us to new 
understanding with the passing 
whisper of their wisdom. Some people 
make the sky more beautiful to gaze 
upon. They stay in our lives for a while, 
leave footprints on our hearts, and we 
are never, ever the same. 

Are my eyes as red as yours look? Yes. 

When ever I see your smiling face I have to smile myself because I love you

were in our social relations no crying abuses, if it were 
not established that one man shall die of hunger while 
another gratifies his every whim of luxury, then you

Yo! let's do dis-EW, SH, ZS, CZM, MR, NG, RB 

It has been a challenging four 
years at LFC. I want to thank 
everyone who has contributed 
to my success— grandma, aunts, 
a uncles, cousins, and close friends. 
' You have watched me evolve 
and mature into the person I am 
today. You've made the crooked 
roads straight, the rough roads 
smooth, and the impossible possible. 
1 am eteiTially grateful to have 
each of you in my life. Thanx. 

Melly Mel/Me La La/ 
Melrose /Me-Lo-De/ My dolpltin 
friend— Can you believe it, it's been 
eight years! You understood me 
when nobody else did. And I thank 
you. It's been real. Let's keep this 
thing going until we reach forever. 

Mommy, Daddy, 
Rhonda, Robert (E-Rob) 
I can't thank you enough 
for everything you have 
done for me-the 
encouragement, the 
strength, the "stay focus," 
the frozen food. . . 
Words can't express 
my gratitude and 
appreciation. I hope you 
see that your sacrifices 
have paid off. You mean 
the world to me. 
I love you aU! 

Tiff Dav^'g- 

We've come a long way from L319. You've been 
a true friend (despite the age jokes). It seems like 
yesturday when we were cruizin' in the Stealth.

Compton in da hizzouse! 

Little one, 

I wonder who will fix your belt and tie your shoes when I am not 

there. But, seriously Renee, you are my dearest and closest friend. 

I know it has been rough. 
I didn't always know what 
I wanted or how accomplish 
things. But you guided me 
through it. I am leaving LFC 
with deeper passion for knowledge 
and success. Thanks to my 
advisors, professors, friends and 
family. 1 love each of you and will 
never loose touch.

There's not a budding boy or girl this day 

But is got up and gone to bring in May; 

A deal of youth, ere this, is come 

Back, and with whitehorn laden home. 

Some have dispatched their cakes and cream 

Before that we have left to dream; 

And some have wept, and wooed, and plighted troth. 

And chose their priest, ere we can cast off sloth. 

Many a green-grown has been given. 

Many a kiss both odd and even. 

Many a glance, too, has been sent 

From out the eye, love's firmament; 

Many a jest told of the keys betraying 

This night, and locks picked; yet we're not a-Maying

"All my life I had been looking for something, and everywhere I turned, someone tried to tell me what it was. I 

accepted their answers too, though they were often in contradiction and even self-contradictory - 1 was naive. I 

was looking for myself and asking everyone except myself questions which I, and only I, could answer. It 

took me a long time and much painful boomeranging of my expectations to achieve a realization everybody else 

appears to have been bom with: That I am nobody but myself. But first I had to discover that I am an invisible

circles trying to catch itself up, now 
fluttered gently down until it found 
a place on which to rest, and 
sometimes the place was Pooh's 
nose and sometimes it wasn't, and in 
a little while Piglet was wearing a 
white muffler round his neck and 
feeling more snowy behind the ears 
than he had ever felt before.

"A professor in Chicago is reported to have given the following 
test to his pupils. He told them they were not really educated 
unless they could say Yes to all these questions: 

Has your education gi\"en you sympathy with all good causes and made 

you espouse them? 

Has it made you public-spirited? 

Has It made you a brother to the weak? 

Have you learned how to make friends and to keep them? 

Do you know what it is to be a friend yourself? 

Can you look an honest man or a pure w-oman straight in the eye? 

Do you see anything to love in a little child? 

Vvill a lonely dog follow you down the street? 

Can you be high-minded and happy in the meaner drudgeries of life? 

Do you think washing dishes and hoeing corn just as compatible with 

high thinking as piano playing or golf? 

Are you good for anything to yourself? Can you be happy alone? 

Can you look out on the world and see anything but dollars and 

cents ? 

Can you look into a mud puddle by the wayside and see anything in 

the puddle but mud? 

Can you look into the sky at night and see beyond the stars?
